Summer of derby begins.

May 12, 2013 013My roller derby league had its first game of the season about a week ago.  It was good times.  We lost drastically to a team who had a little more experience than we did.  The good news about this season is that the b team (my team) plays first.  So that means we get to watch the a team whilst eating nachos and drinking a beer. (Can’t drink before skating because we already fall down enough while sober)

A teammate, me.  Would you pay $11 for these shoes?  Someone did.

I love roller derby. I fell into it(theme of my derby career to date) during my divorce. My mind needed those mental breaks during practice. I was never a sporty spice; I managed to avoid team sports until I was 30. Derby found me at the exact moment in life when I was ready/needed it.collage
Yes, it’s real.
No, I didn’t know how to skate at all when I started.
Yes, it hurts to fall.
No, we don’t wear tutus.
